Best Bets: Props!

When betting the spread isn’t nearly enough

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Two great matchups for a couple of our favorite passing offenses? Don’t mind if I do.

The Miami Dolphins travel to our nation’s capitol to take on one of the worst secondaries in the league. If the Dolphins want to make a Tyreek for MVP push, this is the game that they need to pad some stats. Flipper Anderson owns the single game mark at 336 yards - yes, that’s a real number - and there have been six instances of a receiver topping 300. I’m not predicting 300 for Tyreek, I’m just saying that this is his best shot at a ridiculous number to add to his candidacy. I’m taking the over for him, Waddle, and Tua and I’m hunting for an alternative yards bet on Hill where I can get it.

The other game I’m interested in is the San Francisco 49ers traveling to Philly as road favorites against a 10-1 Eagles squad. Really? Well, the 49ers are playing as well as anyone in the league right now and the Eagles secondary has been more friendly than you might realize. I think all the usual suspects are live - Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle and Brock Purdy. I’ve got that game hitting the over too.

Outside of those two games, there’s only a couple of other bets I like. Rachaad White against the Panthers and the Pittsburgh backs against the Cardinals is a bet for salting away games. Derrick Henry against the Colts is their only path to victory and it’s a favorable match up.
